COMMENTS Evening show. Bill Graham presents "The San Francisco Scene in Toronto". Other artist(s): Jefferson Airplane ; Luke And The Apostles.

One looking at the concert poster (which can be see at the following):
can determine: There were shows from 31st July to 5th August according to the poster, ("evenings at 8.30, matinees on Wednesday and Saturday") which would mean a total of 8 shows [Mon. 7/31, Tues. 8/1, Weds. 8/2 matinee, 8/2 evening, Thurs. 8/3, Fri. 8/4, Sat. 8/5 matinee, 8/5 evening].

Before Alligator Bobby says "We only have time for one more unfortunately and we're gonna do a song we laughingly refer to as 'Alligator'. Ha, Ha!"

David Sorochty:
"Alligator ends with one of the most dramatic endings ever for this song. It finishes with Jerry's guitar cranking and screeching eeeeoowww!! It has a reverb type echo to it that adds to the cranking effect and its pretty stunning. You have to hear it to appreciate it."

3. Commonly circulates with 8/4/67. I've created separate md5 and info text files for each.

Part of The Music Never Stopped Project 2002 shn em up initiative 4/28/2002

Thanks to Raoul Duke for the disks!

But an incredible Alligator.

~On This Day In GRATEFUL DEAD History~

I recommend using your EQ during playback of most of the shows on the IA, this one included.

Windows Media Player has a 10 band EQ and SRS WOW effects that enhance the sound.

Here's one way to stream/download this show:

The IA recommends users of Windows XP view this web-page with RealPlayer.

RealPlayer is a free media player you can download at

Using RealPlayer to view this webpage, click the VBR M3U link to open the songs in the Playlist.

If your Playlist is not open, open it by clicking the Playlist icon at the lower right hand corner of RealPlayer.

Once the songs are in the Playlist, double click the song to play it, then click the record button at the lower left hand corner of Realplayer to record it.

When the red line reaches the other end click the stop button to download the song. Your song is in the RealPlayer Downloads folder.

Repeat these steps for each song.

Eat, Drink, Be Merry and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD, but if you cant' do that....then STFU.

Thanks for the FREE MUSIC from 42 years ago, 1970.

Subject: First Lovelight and amazing Alligator
The first Turn on your Lovelight is a goodie, with Pigpen and Jerry tearing up the place.

Alligator is phenomenal. Driving energy, free-form psychedelic jamming, always moving forward, a true ensemble working together. Alligator was relatively new when they played this gig, but the band is very comfortable with it.
